Independent Reading

The Year of the Panda by Schlein
The Hundred Dresses by Estes
Mr. Popper's Penguins
Pinocchio
Flat Stanley
Homer Price
From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

Read Alouds (One per month)
Narnia (unsure how this will be received so we'll do 1 and see how it goes)
The Penderwicks
The Little Princess
The Railway Children
Tom Sawyer
King of the Wind
Pollyanna




I will not be using TOG Redesigned Year 4 next year, partly because of the subject matter but also because of the cost and hassle of getting the books either buying or from the library. I need a more manageable overall syllabus that is more open and go and to streamline as much as possible. Poetry memorization will be done through Intermediate Language Lessons instead of The Harp and Laurel Wreath just for efficiency.

Jessica,

For reading I would HIGHLY recommend looking into "Drawn Into The Heart of Reading" by Heart of Dakota (www.heartofdakota.com). It is excellent & sounds like what you may be looking for.

Good Luck.
